“If you were a New York bazillionaire, if you were an influence peddler, look, you know how to do business with Hillary Clinton,” said Cruz, who spent much of the day taking shots at Trump. “Write a check, write a check to her foundation and pay her husband even better.”

His more direct jabs and one-liners included:

  • Predicting that a “William Jefferson Clinton Museum of Youth Outreach” would be built in the old Department of Education building, purchased by George Soros
  • Saying of the 72 virgins that terrorists “would meet” — “by the way, no one said all of those virgins were women”
  • “If Hillary Clinton had been elected president — we’ve never had a president serving from Leavenworth,” a reference to the Kansas prison
  • Saying he was “particularly pleased that my good friend Donald Trump will be building a hotel” in what was once the IRS building
  • Complimenting Trump with his left hand: “I’m also pleased to tell you that Donald last week finished building the wall,” he said. Asked by an audience member who paid for it, he replied, “Donald did.”
  • Mocking Obama’s weeping: “Two years ago, when President Obama teared up at the State of the Union, many of us thought John Boehner was back,” he said . . . name-checking groups and people popular with conservatives, saying the Little Sisters of the Poor and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be among those in the gallery at a Cruz State of the Union
